Re: Love and that posture in kenjutsu

That's good stuff, but I don't think Ueshiba would have been directly influenced by Theravedic teachings. More likely it was filtered through Mahayanan and/or Vajrayanan traditions, and possibly through Shinto before he would have had that in his head. I'm just saying this to point out that there are some other places to look for references to the type of state that Osensei describes.
